Kent Taylor transfers from Kansas to UTEP

Tight end Kent Taylor is hoping that his new school for the 2016 season will act as “third time’s the charm” as he takes his talents away from the Kansas Jayhawks. He will be transferring out Lawrence not long after he left the Florida Gators.

On Thursday, the UTEP Miners announced that they had added Taylor to their roster for the 2016 season and he would be eligible to play immediately as he comes in as a graduate transfer.

He left Florida in December of 2013 and sat out the 2014 season with the Jayhawks.

During the 2015 season, he caught 15 passes for 179 yards and a touchdown, making him the leading returning tight end for the Jayhawks. This could be a big addition for the Miners going into the 2016 season.

Kent Taylor was a four-star recruit in the class of 2012 and was the highest-rated tight end in the nation according to many outlets.

The Miners open the season on Sept. 3 when they play the New Mexico State Aggies.
